Combat Against Cancer pledges to alleviate treatment costs in order to ensure that all cancer patients are given a fighting chance to survive. Our organization believes that by eliminating the burden of medical expenses, especially amongst uninsured and underinsured patients, cancer patients and their families will be able to focus on the most important issue – -recovery.
Combat Against Cancer, founded in 2008, is an organization that strives to provide aid to cancer patients by alleviating prescription and treatment costs to ensure that all cancer patients are given a fighting chance to survive. We are determined in bringing communities together to provide support to cancer patients, and help them in becoming one step closer to combating cancer. Our organization plans to organize various successful charity benefits and donate all proceeds to established funds that support patients in obtaining and affording treatment.
Efforts in Meeting Goals
Combat Against Cancer plans to host benefits that will bring the young professional community together and generate support for the cause. With the help of local organizations and businesses, we hope these fundraisers will increase awareness for this cause and unite community members and leaders to create a lasting impact on the future of these patients.
Along with creating awareness of the disease, these benefits will raise funds for the Cancer Care Services Fund at the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center. The UCSF Cancer Care Services Fund was established to provide financial support for cancer patients who are unable to afford their medical and treatment expenses.
